at their schools? mr. obama demands the wealthy pay their fair share of taxes, but he's just another elitist hypocrite when it comes to a fair share of security. >> following the president's announcement, they released a statement and i'm quoting. we look forward to working with congress on a bipartisan basis to find real solutions to protecting america's most valuable asset, our children. attacking firearms and ignoring children is not a solution to the crisis we face as a nation. no, of course. more guns are always the only answer for the nra. joining us now is kristen welker live at the white house. and kristen, we're getting news that the president and the vice president will girn traveling outside of washington to engage the public on the gun issue. what are you hearing? >> that's absolutely right, martin. according to a white house official, you can expect the president and the vice president to separately get out of d.c., hit the road, talk to the american people to try to push for the proposals that they unveiled today. this is, of course, a tactic that the white house has employed i
and actually to get from where we are, given the spending cuts and tax increases that we've implemented so far, to where we need to be to stabilize the debt, is not that heavy a lift if we had a functional politics that was actually paying attention to what needs to be done instead of creating these ridiculous self-inflicted skirmishes and wounds. as you have correctly pointed out, you have even got conservatives spokespeople saying, look, this isn't going to happen, you're not going to do this. we're going to have one of these last minute solutions again. if that is truly the case and if history is precedent, it will be, we really have to ask ourselves about our priorities. >> and yet, david, the problem is the fitch ratings agency has already threatened a ratings downgrade. and it even has a retort who think debt ceiling hostage taking can be a weapon against spending calling it an infective and potentially dangerous mechanism for enforcing fiscal discipline. so what is this obsession they have of falling on their sword and taking the country with them. >> there you go again, martin, stickin
a speech today for 40 minutes on retrenchment, what programs we can cut or what taxes we can cut. that's not his line of country, and i don't think he benefits from that. as the congressman said, from a continuous conversation about how we can cut the government. what kind of a presidency would that be for the next four years. he has to get back to talking about the areas where we can get something done like immigration, tax reform. even the immigration parts that brings in all sorts of people. but he also has at deep seated opposition to war which i think is refreshing from the previous administration. >> chris -- >> i think that's the vice president just shaking hands with al roker of the "today" show. >> he's done it. >> i didn't see al. >> tamron? >> i love it. maybe he could have got us a really good get there. >> we're not very far from -- we're just past the white house, and they were still out of the vehicle, and i have to tell you, rachel, at one point we witnessed the first lady with a literal bounce in her step. they are soaking this in and really enjoying this. dwight eisen
plan, it had 20% tax cuts in it and it didn't balance the budget for another 30 years. it was not a deficit reduction -- >> let me make a point about that. >> jared, go ahead. >> listen to this. this is underappreciated. the paul ryan budget plan required an increase in the debt ceiling. let's be very clear about that. i completely agree with jonathan on this. in fact, these are people who pose as budget hawks. they're really chicken hawks. >> those are the people who are going after chuck hagel who didn't serve in vietnam. >> varijared, the president yesterday in talking about proposals to deal with the issue of gun violence mentioned the idea of employing another 14,000 police officers as part of a gun control package. okay? >> right. >> but doesn't that have the double value of not only increasing protections but also actually employing people? >> right. when i heard that -- >> but is that -- does that come under the word stimulus that paul ryan finds unacceptable. >> i'm afraid if you call it stimulus it may not happen, but yes. but yes, you're right. one of the th
that the president tried to talk about, job legislation, taxes, environment, all those issues that america was concerned about, the republicans found some way to tie it up to make certain he suffered defeats. now the president has gone to the american people and said have i been wrong all along with these issues? we've debated them in the campaign. you, america, what do you think about gays and immigration? do you think i was right? or do you think the republican leadership was right? and guess what, martin? the american people said given the opportunity, we've looked at both sides and, mr. president, you do what you were elected to do. that's why the president can say we're not going to negotiate with debt ceiling, and if the republicans insist on doing it, he is going to go to their constituents, the american people. i have never felt better. >> the president also said on monday, and i'm quoting him, we remember the lessons of our past when twilight years were spent in poverty and parents of a child with a disability had nowhere to turn. we do not believe that in this country freedom is
